Why Ezekiel Bread Is All the Rage Right Now

Our knowledge about what’s healthy and what’s not when it comes to food is getting bigger as we speak. More and more people are moving on from white bread to whole grains so it’s not surprising that the new kinds of healthy bread come to our attention all the time. One of them is Ezekiel bread made by the company Food For Life.

Ezekiel bread is one of the hottest brands of bread on the market right now. It’s made with no white flour, but using six other ingredients: wheat, barley, beans, lentils, millet, and spelt. As a company representative told How Stuff Works, the bread was “inspired by the Bible verse but is not meant to be taken literally.”

The verse in question is from the book of Ezekiel, Chapter 4, Verse 9, where it says, “Take wheat and barley, beans and lentils, millet and spelt; put them in a storage jar and use them to make bread for yourself.”

The selection of grains and legumes makes the bread high in protein and fiber. It doesn’t have any added sugar, which, in addition to no white flour, makes up the bread that’s perfect for many dietary needs.
